The Radford Amazonian Research Expedition Segment
As a follow-up from my Amazonian Study Abroad, I presented my research on medicinal plants at the 2015 Summer Undergraduate Research Forum. The segment of the program was specifically set up for research done during the Radford Amazonian Research Expedition. Many of the attendees were students interested in participating in the next cohort. It was fun to talk about the trip and try to get others excited about it too, especially non-science majors.
Presenting at Radford University for the second time was absolutely great, especially after presenting at the Summer Undergraduate Research Forum the previous fall on the same project. A few of the same audience members were in attendance and were able to see the experiment in a nice before and after. It really offered a nice perspective on the project as well.
Also, they didn't have a laser pointer so I just hopped up on stage!

Traveling to SICB in West Palm Beach, FL in January was great! It was the first conference I'd even been to and also my first research poster presentation. The weather was a nice relief from the cold of Virginia; I even swam in the ocean!
I presented my poster: Trouble with Trenbolone? Examining the influences of a common runoff pollutant on Gambusia holbrooki development and behavior. It was an excellent experience and I met so many amazing students and faculty.
Going to the conference I wish that there were multiple of me. There were so many talks I still wish I could've gone to but didn't have time. I learned so much and was shown so many different point of views and approaches to research. It was exciting.

Presenting at the Summer Undergraduate Research Celebration was a great opportunity. I was presenting to a blend of students and faculty from many disciplines, and some people from the general public. It was a little intimidating presenting to some of the professors, but it was my first research related presentation, and I think it went well. My abstract for this project has been accepted for the 2015 Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology Conference this January.
